I have a report with multiple checkboxes. The checkboxes look fine inside Visual Studio and inside the Report Viewer. However, when I print the report, the checkboxes do not print at the correct size. It looks like they are expanding to their original size and I am only seeing the top left-hand corner. I tried to use the default images and I also created my own checkbox images and it does not seem to make any difference. Please let me know if there is a value that I am not setting correctly or if there is something else I need to do in order for these checkboxes to print correctly. 

I have attached three images. 
1. printedversion - The printed result with the checkbox not sized correctly.
2. reportviewerversion - How it looks in the webpage via the report viewer. 
3. vseditor - how it looks in Visual Studio with the current properties. 

Thank you,
Shawn

Hi Shawn,

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We believe that the checkbox's correct behavior is to render the image in its original size(if CanGrow is set to False only a part of the image will be rendered). That's why our suggestion is to resize the image to the desired size of the checkbox beforehand. Still the inconsistent behavior in the HTML rendering is a wrong and we would standardize the behavior in all views. We have updated your telerik points for bringing this to our attention.
In case you still want to resize the image automatically (at runtime), our suggestion is to use a combination of PictureBox and TextBox instead of CheckBox.

All the best,

Hi Petio,
Thank you for your reply. I have gotten around this issue by using a textbox with a border and setting an "X" inside if the condition is true. It isn't as nice as a checkbox image, but it gets the job done! 
Regards,
Shawn
